Naya Rivera's Final TV Appearance Will Be on Netflix's 'Sugar Rush'

Naya Rivera‘s final TV appearance before her tragic death has been revealed.

The Glee actress, who sadly died at the age of 33 after a drowning accident with her son in Lake Piru, will appear as a featured guest on Season 3 of Netflix‘s baking competition reality TV series, Sugar Rush, which will be released on Friday (July 31).

Here’s more about the upcoming episode, via Deadline: “Back in February, a few weeks before all production ground to a halt, the Glee alumna filmed a guest-judge appearance on Sugar Rush in Los Angeles, sitting alongside the show’s host Hunter March and professional chef judges Candace Nelson and Adriano Zumbo. It was the last thing Rivera shot before the coronavirus-related Hollywood production shutdown, now in its fifth month.”

According to the report, after careful consideration and in consultation with Naya‘s manager Gladys Gonzalez, a decision was made to move ahead with the episode and release it as planned. It will also be dedicated to Naya, and feature an on-screen note honoring her before the opening credits.

Naya‘s sister recently posted a moving tribute.
